    Thank you Dale for always encouraging me and my friends to be men of God. You taught us the value of being Godly men and always being brothers of integrity. I appreciate your words of wisdom and keeping me accountable. You may have never known it, but I valued it. I knew that you were a real one. There was nothing fake about you. I honor and respect you sir and will forever appreciate your leadership.

    This was a complete shock, I was just talking to my wife about Dale this morning. Dale and I worked together at the IRS from 1983 until he retired. When we worked downtown in the Ariel Rios building for EPMF, we went to lunch together and a walk almost every day. The story I was telling my wife today was about a folded up $10 bill from 1985 that I keep in my wallet. Dale and I went to lunch one day and when we got the bill I realized I had no money, Dale paid for lunch without question, on the way back to the office we stopped at the IRFCU and got some money, including this bill, which I keep til this day. It will forever be known in my family as Dale’s $10 bill. Rich Colombo, Go Redskins forever!!

    I am so sorry to hear of Liddell’s passing. He was a co-worker at the US Postal Service in, Washington, DC, in the late 60’s or early 70’s. I remember him as a good guy. I smiled when I read he played whist. Many of us learned to play on break at the PO. My condolences to the entire family. Our God is a good God.

  12. DAISY OKPALE & JACKSON OKPALE says:

    The news of your death came as a great shock to us.
    We thank God for the opportunity of knowing you, you were an embodiment of love and reflected the love of God. We are grateful to God that you are in a better place. We love you and may you continually rest in the bosom of our lord.
